To finish out the guest cartoons we are doing a double post. First up is Dress for Success from Chris Howard and Jeff Wason. Dress for Success is a story arc comic that doesn’t feel like a long form comic as the writers keep the dialogue to a minimum or don’t bother using any at all. Check out the archives to go through the story. Here is how Chris describes it:
Dressed For Success is the story of Alex Corbett and Walter Andrewkowski, two guys thrown together by chance, now making their way in a crazy universe one adventure at a time. All the while trying to stay one step ahead of the mafia and with the hopes of turning a profit. Begun in the 90′s during the Indie boom, DFS is back on the web and ready for new adventures. As with our earlies stories, we produced a series of movie parody posters. Most were just for fun and to tease people before we started our new story, but the Crystal Skull poster was actually the title page for our first new story, Mississauga Jay and the Lost Shrine of the Osars. The Hangover parody proved very popular, and could lead into an actual story in the future. Alex and Walter have traveled back in time once already, and an even more convoluted messed up time story with Philip, (the guy in the back) helping them wouldn’t be out of the question. The baby Mafia alien is a total wild card.
All the parody posters are viewable here: http://egestacomics.com/parody-posters/
Rounding out the Guest Movie Posters we return to Aidan Casserly of Scapula fame in his rendition of Scapula ala The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Thanks to all my Guest Cartoonists for helping out during my break. Hope you readers have enjoyed it.
For the next several weeks I am taking a break. So as part of my May Charity Challenge I asked for submissions of cartoonists to send a movie/tv poster if their characters replaced the actors. I’ll be posting Sunday, Tuesday and Thursdays so check back and give the cartoonists the support you fail to give me. haha. j/k.
First up is Aidan Casserly of Scapula fame. Aiden describes Scapula as
SCAPULA is the story of the World’s Worst Villain…’worst’ in every sense of the word. Scapula is a frustrated, downtrodden man in a somewhat-scary skeleton costume who fights to prove his worth to the world. To do that he’ll have to stake his claim in the underworld, competing with the likes of other crazed super-villains, monsters, gangsters, lunatics and other troubled minds. It’s going to be a tough trip.
I personally think Scapula is a cross between alien Spiderman and the Tick. Typically I am not into long form comics but Aidan’s beautiful illustration work and potty humor keep things so entertaining that I have to stay updated. You can too. He posts every Sunday so check him out.
Next up on Thursday is Robert of Spilled Ink
